The Mathematics of Life, You Can’t Have it All

Right from the inception of the world, the default design of this world has been failure, stress and sorrow. Man came to this world in blood and he came crying vehemently, nobody leads a straight life without some ups and downs, even the so called ‘the rich’. It is a general knowledge that the rich also cry.

You can’t have it all, you have to lack one thing or the other, and nobody is satisfied with whatever he/she has, the likes of Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Larry Page, Paul Allen, Carlos Slim, who are in the frontline of the world richest people are not satisfied with their wealth, only death satisfies human beings.

While some people eat each day and throw the remaining in their waste bin, some find it very hard to eat one-square meal each day. While some spend thousands of dollars on foods for their dogs yearly, some are praying to eat the remnants of what the dogs have eaten. While some have foods, but have problem eating the foods, some can eat, but there is no food to eat. While some people abort their pregnancies because they are not ready for motherhood, some cry each day to at least be pregnant and have a still-birth. While some get drivers to drive their dogs to a veterinary doctor, some are desperate to get a motor-cycle, at least to ease their movement from one place to another.

For the fact that someone is in penury now does not mean that he/she is going to be rich tomorrow, there are some people that would be poor till death, life is unpredictable, being in affluence today does not mean you will live in opulence till death, and I have seen someone who was born by nobody and became somebody, you could be a son or a daughter of a very wealthy man and be wealthier and be more popular than your father.

Again, the amount of work you do is not proportional to how wealthy you are going to be. Your road to wealthy life depends on how smart you work and with little bit of luck and favour.

Life is not mathematics, where someone would believe he/she would be wealthy or be poor because of his/her background. You just have to be careful with what you think, because what you think would determine what you would say, what you say determines your actions, your actions become your habits and your habits  in the end form your destiny.
